Network Resource Monitor For Windows XP?

From Windows Vista (I think) and later operating systems, there is included a "Resource Monitor" which monitors various aspects of the computer depending on which tab is selected within the Resource Monitor.

 

By selecting the "Network" tab, this shows what processes are using the internet and what bandwidth they are using also. Additionally, processes can be stopped (optionally) if wanted.

 

Windows XP doesn't have a Network Resource Monitor included. So I'm after a small/lightweight program that shows what processes/applications are using the internet, what bandwidth they use, and, preferably, have an to option to close/stop processes.

 

Any suggested programs that will do this, please?

 

Thank you.

Try TCPView:

It does at least two of your requirements.  Supposed to also show the bytes in and out but that feature is not working on my Win 10.

Thanks for that!

 

TCPView basically does what I want, but it seems to show dozens of processes (at least on initial display) which are not actively using the internet. This makes it a bit "messy" and distracting compared to the Network Resource Monitor used on Vista and later OS's which basically only shows the processes which are actually using the internet.

 

So, ideally some other similar program which only shows active internet processes is preferred. I'll keep looking for alternative programs.
